Employee Safety Concerns Prompt SSI SCHAEFER to Cancel LogiMAT Participation

In the light of the rapid spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus), the SSI SCHAEFER Group cancels the participation in the intralogistics trade fair LogiMAT. The health of employees and customers is more important. SSI SCHAEFER will participate with customers and interested fair visitors by offering a virtual fair stand. This digital presentation will include key technologies as well as the option for a personal consultation with experts.

Neunkirchen/Germany, 3 March 2020. After thorough examination, the SSI SCHAEFER Group has decided not to participate in the intralogistics trade fair LogiMAT 2020 from 10 to 12 March in Stuttgart.

Steffen Bersch, CEO of the SSI SCHAEFER Group, explains, “Taking into account the rapid spread of the coronavirus, we are obligated to focus on the well-being of our employees and customers. Thereby, we support the effort of health and local government officials to curb the spread of the coronavirus. Considering the current risk assessment, we can no longer take the responsibility for a participation in a trade fair with an international audience.”

SSI SCHAEFER continues to work with current and potential new customers in the wake of LogiMAT 2020, while the company moves the trade fair to the company website. The new digital experience will be available soon on ssi-schaefer.com. This will include a presentation of key technologies and consulting as well as an exchange with experts to facilitate talks with customers and visitors. “We are continuing our customer dialogue and are confident that the virtual stand on our website with various presentations is a great alternative for our customers, partners, and interested companies,” says Enrico Gazzano, Vice President Global Marketing at SSI SCHAEFER.
